Hello everyone

Everytime I go to Dominican Repulic resorts, we are getting served this wonderful rice dish. I am not sure how to spell the name, starts with P. To describe it - it looks like fried rice, with veggies and all sorts of fish (craw fish and shrimp is a must). Would anyone have any idea?


Thanks a bunch.

I got your recipe! I not only had to fly down there, but I also had to beat it out of an old lady(she wouldn't give in until I threatened to stomp on her dentures) So I hope you appreciate this. It's called "Paella Valencia". The ingrediants are: 6 cups chicken broth
                1/4 teaspoon saffron
                  1 small onion (peeled)
                5 pounds chicken
                1/2 cup olive oil
                1/4 lb. chorizo sausage in 1/4 inch slices
                1/4 pound smoked ham (diced)
                1 medium onion chopped
                4 scallions chopped
                4 tablespoons chopped garlic
                1/2 cup pimiento
                12 jumbo shrimp
                1 lb. small or medium shrimp
                3 cups yellow rice
                5 tablespoons chopped parsley
                2 bay leaves crumbled
                1/2 cup dry wine (white)
                1/4 lb. frozen peas
                24 clams and/or mussels scrubbed
                lemon wedges and parsley for garnish
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Combine broth, saffron, whole onion in a small saucepan. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Remove onion and measure the broth - You need exactly 5 1/2 cups. Cut chicken into small serving piece's. Dry piece's well and sprinkle with salt. In a metal Paella pan(18 inch diameter) heat oil. Add chicken piece's and fry over high heat until tender. Remove and place on warm platter. Add chirizo and ham to pan and stir fry about 10 minutes. Add chopped onion, scallions, garlic, and pimiento and saute' until onion is translucent. Add shrimp and saute' until shrimp barely turns pink(3 - 4 minutes). Remove shrimp and place on platter with chicken. Add rice to the pan and stir to coat well with oil. Sprinkle in parsley and bay leaves. Stir in boiling hot chicken broth, wine, and peas. Salt to taste. Bring to a boil and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, over medium high heat, about 10 minutes. Blend shrimp, rice and chicken. Add clams and/or mussels, blending into rice. Move paella pan to oven and bake at 325 degrees F, uncovered for 20 minutes. Remove fron oven, lightly cover with foil for 10 minutes. Then serve - Save me some. CYa!
